也可以这么说,明智的、勤奋的、有用的人可以分成两类:第一类,他们工作就是工作,娱乐就是娱乐。第二类,他们的工作和娱乐是一码事。
We can also say there are two types of those people who are wise, assiduous, and helpful: for the first type, they work for work’s  reason and entertain for entertainment’s  reason. For the other type, work and entertainment are the same thing.


在这两种人当中,前者占多数。他们得到相应的补偿。长时间的办公室或工厂里工作,作为回报给他们带来的不仅是维持生计的金钱,而且是一种渴求消遣的强烈欲望,哪怕这种消遣是以最简单、最朴实的方式进行、命运的宠儿则属于第二类人。
In these two types of people, the first type is far more than the second one. They get their payback. Long time’s work in the office or in the factory, in return, not only can work bring them with money to make ends meet, it can also bring them with the desire for entertainment through which is realized in the simplest and earthiest way.


他们的生活是一种自然的和谐。对他们来说,工作时间永远太短,每个工作日都是假期;正常的假日来临之时,他们总是抱怨他们正在全神贯注的工作被强行中断。
Their life is a kind of naturally harmony. For them, work time is never long enough, every weekday is holiday; as the normal holiday comes, they always complain about being interrupted when they are absorbed in their work.


然而,对于这两种人来说,变换一下视角,改变一下氛围,做一件别的事,是十分必要的。的确如此,那些工作即娱乐的人们很可能最需要以某种方式使他们每隔一段时间可以把工作从大脑中驱逐出去。
However, for these two types of people, it is very necessary to change a visual angle and the atmosphere, and to do other thing. It is quite right that those people who think work as entertainment need a way to remove work from their brains every once in a while.
